A key and comprehensive monograph on the work of American photographer Francesca Woodman. Woodman remains an enigmatic figure in photo history, not least because of her youthful prodigy and tragically short life. Her self-portraits and explorations of time and space raise many questions which are explored in Chris Townsend's text. The book includes extracts from Woodman's journals, selected and introduced by her father, and over 200 illustrations of her work.
